The article presents statistics on personal disability insurance. Questions involve the level of long term coverage held by private industry employees, most valuable assets held by adults, belief of the amount of disability insurance needed, and sources of finance in the case of extended disability. It is reported that less than a third of employees in the private sector carry long-term coverage. The opinion expressed in the article is that disability coverage is not owned by as many people as may need a policy.
